[Fabio M Costa] BATTERY TESTERS AND STARTING AIDS – APPLY AND KEEP YOUR BATTERY IN TOP CONDITION!

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Your car will not start because of a dead battery? We will give you tips!

Has it already happened to you? You step out the door, walk to the car and press the central locking, and nothing happens? At first, you still think that your best car batteries has run out and do your good spirits open the car with the key. You get in the car and notice that the interior also has not been dropped. Will it not? You put the key in the ignition, turn him around and nothing happens! Battery empty! In most cases, this is because you unknowingly let something like the radio or lights.

It can also happen that you have to be the just battery is broken and replaced. This is particularly extreme (weather) conditions, such as a severe winter. There are also battery packs which gradually deflated and can not be recharged more maximum. This causes problems especially in diesel engines because they have peak current necessary to start at the first time. We try to give you helpful tips on how to avoid an empty battery and what to do if you still need to be fast at work.

Tip 1: Avoid an empty battery with a battery tester

Knowledge is power, and prevention is better than cure! With a battery tester can check the status of your battery, so you can intervene before it is too late. Today there are battery testers in all price ranges, from a few tens to hundreds of euros. What you need, you decide for yourself.

The cheaper versions often come in the form of cigarette lighter plug. These measure the battery voltage when the ignition is switched on, simple! The meter about 12.7 volts then your batteries full and you have no problems. Is the voltage below 12.5 volts then you have to worry. You’ll probably leave something like an interior light. Whether your battery is not charging more for 100% and needs to be replaced. Always make sure your engine is turned off once you do a reading. If the engine is turned on, the meter anyway a voltage of about 14 volts because the alternator charges the battery when running the motor.

With the more expensive battery testers can get a complete analysis (starting power, cold start current, alternator test, etc.) making your battery, but this is not profitable for private use. These testers are particularly interesting for companies because you can also check the truck’s battery.

Another way to ensure that you are faced with an empty battery is testing the acidity of your battery acid. This can be done easily with a battery tester. Watch out, because you’re dealing with corrosive acid.
Again, this works very directly. You turn one of the caps from the battery and plug the meter into the acid of the battery. Then squeeze the suction ball and the meter will tell you by color in what state is your battery. Red means charging directly, blue is half full and yellow in order.

Tip 2: Do you have a dead battery? Use jumper cables or a starting aid

It’s probably happened to you once; you want to drive to work, but the car will not start. Shit, a dead battery? What now? Well, there are two options:

  • You grab the jumper cables in your trunk and start your car using the car of the neighbor.
  • You use a starting aid (jump starter) to boost your battery.

The significant advantage of jumper cables is that they are relatively inexpensive. For two bucks you already have a good set of wires. The downside is that you always need an extra car to talk to get your battery. With a starting aid that is not necessary, so this also slightly more pricey. The big advantage is that you are not dependent on a 2nd car.

If you start a car using jumper cables

Set the 2nd car nearby and check on which side of the 2nd session of the battery. This i.v.m. the length of the jumper cables. Run the engine of the 2nd car and grab the red jump lead. Put the clamp of the red jumper cable to the + of the 2nd car then the + of your dead battery. If you can not find the plus on the battery, you can recognize a red mark on cables or batteries.

Now do the same now with the black jumper wire. First, set the clamp to the negative terminal of the 2nd car battery and then to the negative terminal on the dead battery. Note: this may cause a spark, try to do one good.
Wait a few minutes to start the dead battery. Start him and then let the engine run for a few moments to connect jumper cables.

Remove the clip of the red booster cable which is on the charged battery; then you get the red terminal of the battery. Repeat step 5, but for the black jumper wire. Now you can start the car again, but make sure you’re not slow to turn. Then you will do over again throughout the tune, and no one is waiting. It takes half an hour to an hour before you can start again independently of the battery. Do not forget this!

If you start a car with a starting aid/jump starter

A starting aid is also called a mobile battery. This just provides enough power to start your (almost empty) battery. The big advantage is that you do not need an extra car, and you do not depend on others. The connection operates in the same way as for jumper cables as we have described above. Note here also good that you put the clamps on the right poles. A starting aid often has a built-in compressor, an LED lamp, USB and a 12V socket. You can also inflate your tires, and you can see in the dark what you’re doing. With the USB connection, you can even charge your smartphone. Handy!

Where have you to be careful when buying jumper cables or a starting aid?

The capacity of a car battery depends on upon the size of the engine, and whether it is a diesel or petrol engine. The latter is of significant influence on the thickness of the jumper cables and the capacity of your starting aid. A diesel engine needs a lot more power than a gasoline engine. Namely, a diesel engine starts with a glow plug and an engine with a spark plug. A glow plug consists of small incandescent spirals, but these consume, like an electric heater, a lot of power. For a diesel engine, you can use a wire thickness of from 25 mm2, depending on the size of the engine and is therefore of your battery. Tip: check the car battery capacity and purchase on that basis starting cables.

For a start aid course applies the same. Again, it is the power to be supplied to initiate the car or truck. It is important that you not only pay attention to the thickness of the cables, but also on the capacity of the starting aid. The amps of starting aids range from 8 up to 1,500 amperes. Before purchasing a starting aid, first, check your battery, so you know which one to buy.

[Fabio M Costa] LAWN TRACTORS, MOWING ROBOT AND HOW TO USE

Monday, June 13th, 2016

Lawn tractors

Mowing driving! Make a lane of your garden. A tractor is mowing large surfaces you play. It sit, drives off, and send the best. You have heaps of fun while mowing. There are also best self propelled lawn mower electric start

From where it pays to purchase a lawn tractor?

Of course, there are crazy it looks like you’re sitting on your mower mowing your grass. However, you need not be a landowner to purchase such a machine garden worthwhile. Lawn tractors are already useful on surfaces from 600 m2 by their maneuverability.

The differences between lawn tractors and riding mowers: When a rider sits the driver above the engine, with a garden tractor is the drive unit before him.

The advantage of tractors is that they can be used for all kinds of work. They are not only suitable for cutting grass. There may also be devices such as snow blades, brooms, sprinkle trailers and become much more attached to.

The decisive factor is, of course, the price; mowers are a lot cheaper. Lawn tractors are smaller and less powerful than garden tractors.

Significant parts of the machine

Discharge to the rear or side

Garden tractors with ejection to the rear throw the mown grass without detours directly over the rear axle into the receptacle. This may be mowed high and wet grass. A Rider discharge side is suitable if you do not want to collect the clippings.

Transmissions

  • Trans-Matic transmission: a trans-Matic transmission can continuously switch. With the brake pedal can slow down the mower and drive off again without having to switch.
  • Hydrostatic transmission: the speed is in this drive adjustable without or switch.
  • Automatic transmission: the speed control and direction are governed exclusively by the accelerator. There does not need to be changed.

Mowing Robot

Do you know that? It is the weekend. You have anywhere fancy, except for mowing grass. Endlessly back and forth accompanied by the monotonous hum of your lawn mower. Then you once again stumbling over the cable from your electric lawn mower, or tank needs to be refilled, or the container for the cut grass is packed – always just before you are ready. Enough! Make your life easier anyway with mowing robots!

Advantages of a mowing robot

  • Power saving: never push more heavy lawn mower for you. Especially for older people is a significant relief.
  • Time saving: the mowing time is now free time. Yippie! Also, the garden machine takes removing clippings from here. All models have an integrated mulching.
  • Childishly easy: the operation is simple. Beacon lawn surface to be processed with the boundary wire and feed it into the machine. To work! Also, can be stored in some models week programs.
  • Environmentally friendly: no gas, no oil, no exhaust.
  • Silent: lawn mowing robot operates virtually silently.
  • Quality work: the machine can be optimally adjusted to your garden and thereby ensures a high quality of cut.
  • The result: a beautiful, uniform lawn.
  • Safe: the device is equipped with many safety equipment. The lift sensor will stop the mower when it is lifted, and a wire sensor stops the engine when he gets behind the boundary wire. The bumper sensor also takes him away from fixed objects.
  • Does not require much maintenance: mowing robot is suitable for all types of lawns and doing its job in any weather. Also, obstacles and ramps for most models no problem.
  • Such machines are also great for people with allergies.

TIPS FOR USING THE MOWER WITH ENGINES 4 STROKE

Gas

No need to use Premium gasoline. In the case where not get can be utilized without drawbacks. It is also recommended not to leave fuel in the tank for more than 15 days.

Type of oil: SAE 20W-50 or 15W-40 recognized brand (we recommend using oil Maruyama)

Oil quantity: You can vary engine models, but almost all have a pan 535c.c. (Not to exceed the level, could damage the motor). It is recommended to put a little oil and go with the rod controlling not to put more oil.

Oil change: It is important to remember that usually come without oil engines so before putting the equipment in place should be reviewed and put oil if necessary. Then, changes are produced according to the following scheme:

First oil changes at 5 hours of use

Subsequent changes:
– If we use mineral oil between 25 and 50hs of use
– If we use synthetic oil between 100 and 150hs of use

With the change of oil should be modified the fuel filter if the mower has one.

Air filter

It is important always to keep clean the air filter, so ALWAYS recommend cleaning after mowing. There are two types of air filter:

– Foam filter: Clean with water and detergent. Once you clean it will drop a few drops of engine oil and spreads to permeate the entire screen.
– Filter paper: In this case the dry filter is cleaned so a compressor is used for cleaning. Always the compressor at least 15 cm to avoid damaging the screen and always in the direction “inside out.”

Lawn mowers with 4-stroke engines must work ALWAYS horizontally. The maximum allowed inclination is 15 degrees. Do not be fooled by sellers who do not know what they sell. NEVER use the mower more than 15 ° inclination. (NO ENGINE PROPERLY LUBRICATES)

[Fabio M Costa] INFORMATION AND ADVICE ON MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES

Monday, June 13th, 2016

Memory foam mattresses are unique. Why is memory foam so unique you might ask? Good question! A good question deserves a good answer! We lay it out for you. In a few minutes, you can read more about unique features and particular advantages of memory foam mattresses. Buying a memory foam mattress can not just do. Choosing the right memory foam mattress is quite a challenge. We will help you with the good information and tips! View memory foam mattress topper reviews

The properties associated with a memory foam mattress:

  • Very comfortable
  • Excellent adaptability
  • Healthy weight
  • Pressure-lowering effect (good for the muscles and joints)
  • Very good insulation
  • Resilient foam
  • Long lifespan

HOW IS THE NAME “memory foam” GENESIS?

In the 70 was developed by NASA memory foam. At the launch of the space shuttle is a huge power gear free (G-forces). To cope better with these forces and to distribute the body was developed memory foam. The memory foam was never actually used in space shuttles.

Memory foam mattresses have many names: NASA foam mattress, Visco elastic foam mattress, foam mattress comfort, anti-decubitus mattress, medical foam mattress, lazy foam mattress and memory foam mattress. All names fall within the concept mattress.

HOW IS a memory foam mattress MADE?

Memory foam is a unique material. Memory foam is made from polyurethane foam as polyether and cold foam. The difference between the types of foam can be found in the cell structure. Memory foam has empty cells that are air-permeable. Thus, the air will not be pressed together as the cells are pressed together. The result is that memory foam reacts delayed. Pressing the memory foam mattress takes more energy and bounce back to its original state is slower than other mattresses.

Memory foam mattresses consist almost never 100% from only memory foam. The top layer of memory foam mattress is made of memory foam. The nucleus where the memory foam top layer is attached to must be supportive and resilient. The following combinations are possible:

  • Cold foam core with memory foam top layer
  • Pocket Suspension core with memory foam top layer
  • Polyurethane foam core with memory foam top layer

CAST or foamed memory foam?

Memory foam can make in two ways: Casting and foaming. What difference does it will make you think? There are great differences in quality among molded memory foam and memory foam. Molded memory foam is of lesser quality. The biggest difference is the price. Molded memory foam is cheap because the production process is much shorter than in foams. Foamed memory foam is breathable and wicks moisture and heat thoroughly. How to recognize the different types of memory foam? Molded memory foam feels rubbery, and foam memory foam feels like a sponge.

HUMIDITY AND AIR REGULATORY PROPERTIES

How good a memory foam mattress can deal with moisture and body heat is dependent on the cell structure. Memory foam mattresses are made in two different types:

1. Memory foam with open cells
2. Memory foam with closed cell structure

Memory foam with open-cell structure has the best moisture and air ventilating properties. The combination of pocket sprung with memory foam gives the best ventilating effect. The memory foam feels cool to the touch and has good moisture management. A memory foam mattress with pocket springs core is ideal for sleepers who easily hot or sweat a lot.

OPEN CELL STRUCTURE OF CLOSED CELL STRUCTURE?

Memory foam has an open or closed cell structure. The production of particular memory foam has an open or closed cell structure. The making of memory foam with an open cell structure lasts longer and therefore more expensive in price. Memory foam of high quality has an open cell structure. Cheaper memory foam mattresses often have a closed cell structure. The significant advantage of the open cell structure with memory foam mattresses is that wick moisture and drain well. The memory foam mattress will feel cool and fresh. Memory foam mattresses with an open cell structure suitable for sleepers who have difficult with a clammy feeling during sleep.

WHAT DENSITY?

Density memory foam can vary widely. Density is expressed in kilograms per cubic meter. The values start at 40 kg per m3 run up to 85 kg per m3. The density tells you how close the cells tightly together per m3. The higher the values, the closer the cells are packed together. The density in memory foam says something about the weight per m3 and the density of the cell structure.

In cold foam and polyether foam is a higher SG or HR values well. With memory foam works differently. The more kilos, the more mass. The cells are smaller, thus increasing the density. The smaller the cells despite takes more breathability from memory foam. It has the effect that it is hot, less moisture away and slow-moving. Says something about the density, the hardness of memory foam? It says nothing about how soft or hard is a memory foam mattress.

What can you keep best if you buy a memory foam mattress? It is important to find a good balance between the cell density and the ventilation capacity of memory foam. The values that begin with the best memory foam from 50 kg per m3 to 65 kg per m3.

[Fabio M Costa] EMBROIDERY MACHINES – A NEW WORLD OF CREATIVE IDEAS

Sunday, June 12th, 2016

With the best embroidery machine, a new world is full of creative ideas open to you

Endless creativity

You can if you want to embroider anything, e.g., Logos, names, etc. in both large and smaller sizes. It is possible to stitch preset designs. But what’s more fun than an idea to convert to a full embroidery. There are different kinds of embroidery machines. Below are the various embroidery machines will be explained in more detail.

Domestic stand-alone embroidery machine

This is an embroidery machine that can embroider only (not sewing). These embroidery machines are well suited for the seamstress who occasionally what do embroidery and while embroidering just wants to continue working on her sewing machine.

The combination sewing and embroidery machine

These are machines that are both sewing and embroidery machine. For someone just starting out with this hobby, there are already very competitive sewing and embroidery machines available. These are more limited in capability, but you can of course already very much.

If the demands are higher, there is available an embroidery machine for any desired level. The top devices of most computer brands can be found in this class.

The embroidery machines

Everyone has a fair, or a shopping mall saw a company that embroiders names on towels or motives baseball caps. They make use of this technique.

These embroidery machines can only embroider and seem no longer an ordinary sewing machine. They are equipped with multiple needles and can at high speed and without any time be changed yarn embroidery motifs. So you have a lot of embroideries, this is the kind of embroidery machine that you need.

Software

All these tools can be used in combination with software. So you have the complete freedom to create a motif and the stabbing your desired embroidery. The variation and design possibilities depend on the embroidery package you choose.

Tips for the embroidery machine in a matter

Embroidery enthusiasts often face particular challenges, such as the nose, warping, about stabbing beaten and broken wire. Coordination of different elements embroidery when working with delicate fabrics to eliminate these challenges. Synchronization of each component, such as the type of production and the stabilizer weight, the appropriate size needle and thread, and the voltage is to change the quality of the products, the finished embroidery. Experimenting always comparable weight waste fabric before sewing on the material of the project. felling

Stabilizer

Most seamstresses follow the rule of thumb when selecting sheets stabilizer. The heavier the weight of the fabric, the lighter the plate and the lighter weight of the material, the thickness of the plate. However, there is another challenge for lightweight fabrics. Stabilizing plates are usually located on the side of the fabric, whereby the shine through fine dust or transparent. Although most of the sewers using stabilizers against cracks, which are torn around the edges, often also to stretch tissue or cause deformation. Use Cut-away stabilizers, in which soft textures and transparent or poly-mesh to reduce the risk of wrinkling or ghost outlines around design.

Needle size

Using the wrong needle size with delicate fabrics results always marks visible puncture. Eliminate this frustration by selecting the appropriate size needle for the fabric type. Refer to the table of fabric and needle sizes in the manual of the embroidery machine. Needle sizes are available with different needle points, which influence the way in which the needle penetrates the tissue. For example, needles flat-tibia eye of standard size and are often interchangeable with sewing and embroidery. This type of needle is provided with a ball or sharp, depending on the kind of fabric. Cutting needles have a narrow pit, perfect for piercing through the dense texture and delicate fabrics needles ball for fine knits.

Voltage regulation

The size of the needle should automatically adjust the tension of the above thread. The size of the needle and the operating voltage of hand in hand together with other components, such as support, wire, and plate stabilizer. Always refer to the manual of the machine for the recommended charts drive voltage for adjusting or choking.

Discussion

Using sewing thread for all applications embroidery always leads to strand breaks, on stabbing beaten and often broken needles. Sewing threads, generally used for sewing clothes, a structure other than yarn embroidery body. This type of wire has a slightly thicker and is resistant to high-density stitching to sections complete embroidered. Manufacturers such as Robison-Anton, Madeira or Floriani, produce different sizes and types of yarns such as polyester, cotton, rayon and silk.

[Fabio M Costa] TIPS FOR AIRLESS PAINT SPRAYING

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

A spray pressure

If there is an extra track on the outside of the paint jet at each side arises, there is the so-called “tailing” effect. This can be remedied by increasing the pressure of the pump or the paint slightly to thin out

airless spray pattern

In the picture above the tailing on the top two jobs to see. In this case, (an air airless pump) one had the pump pressure set too low, it stood at 4 bars. When the pump pressure was increased to 5 bars. the tailing was gone and one could the lower second spray stripes make which shows a good spray pattern. View airless paint sprayer reviews

Spraying distance

If the gun is held too close to the object, the paint will not get the opportunity to distribute itself sufficient. If one is equally against the paint jet the light like you see in the distance the paint distribution is optimal.This distance must be maintained during spraying.

Wear out

When working with a worn nozzle (nozzle or tip), you get in the center of the jet too much paint and the paint distribution will not be good, so get a new nozzle.

Spray angle

When working with a nozzle with a spray angle is too narrow, there must many jobs exactly are sprayed adjacent to a connecting plane to ranges. In practice, this is very difficult and will almost always cause uneven coating. Large areas are usually with a spray angle of at least sprayed 50 degrees.

Operation

When spraying is necessary to release the trigger after each spray movement. If one constantly by spraying without releasing the trigger, you get the turns a place with extra thick paint so that no uniform the surface is established.

How to spray with an airless spray gun.

Keep the airless spray gun at approximately 30 cm from the surface to be sprayed and keeps the right on the surface to be sprayed.

Move the airless spray gun parallel to the surface to be painted, make sure that the distance to the surface to be sprayed remains the same plus or minus 30 cm. Manual for the spraying of large areas.

  1. Keep gun perpendicular to the surface. (If not, the fluid is not evenly distributed evenly.)
  2. Distance to. Keep the surface area the same as the distance is determined by the beam width. (If not, the beam width and vary the thickness will not be uniform.)
  3. Pulling the trigger in the movement. (If one pulls the trigger and then starts it will encourage the movement or accumulation of fluid either unevenly applied layer.)
  4. At the end let go of a job trigger, and then begin again with the next job. (If you hold the trigger to turn one there is a brief moment of arrest, and an accumulation of fluid overlaps either unevenly applied layer.)
  5. The gun uniformly (at the same speed) move because this speed is determined by the layer thickness. (If the movement speed is different, the layer thickness will also be different)
  6. If one sets even higher demands on the surface to be sprayed can correct any jobs or stripe effect by overlapping the jobs for half. Even better is to apply the second layer then crosswise.
